The Daily Lamp: Rich Brilliant Willing’s Monocle Lamp, Which Keeps an Eye on Everything

I’m hoping I’m not overselling this one, but I think the design is tight.  This is called Monocle, from design firm Rich Brilliant Willing.  It doesn’t look like much, but I think this product is outstanding — that’s why it made the Daily Lamp!

Monocle has two diffusing options — a flat diffuser that (I assume) spreads a little less than the dome diffuser, below:

Flat diffuser:

monocle-flat-lens-1

Dome diffuser:

monocle-dome-lens

 

Both Monocle styles are warm white LED, around 2700 Kelvin, and run around $425 USD.  That’s quite a jump up in price from your typical $10 Lowes or Home Depot styled monocle-esque fixtures, isn’t it…

About the Monocle lamp, from Rich Brilliant Willing:

With one eye on his subject, Monocle provides a strong yet warm beam of LED powered light. This rotating surface mounted fixture has been shaped from milled aluminum, resulting in a smooth and clean product perfect for any space where warm directional light is needed. In order to augment your view, Monocle enjoys placement above your shoulder or head..
